      Comments about Curt Class 3 Receiver Hitch, 2":

      Purchased online - had it shipped(free shipping) to my home - arrived in 5 days. My truck is a 2003 Ford Ranger Edge, 2 wheel drive. No drilling is required for install. An extra set of hands is helpful, but not required. Majority of hitch remains hidden from view and it doesn't interfere with the spare tire. It is well made/solid with a nice powder coat. Install was 25 minutes. To install, drop your spare down to the ground to get it out of way. Remove 2 (furthest forward-towards front of truck) of the 4 bolts attaching rear bumper which are held to the frame with jam nuts. Loosen remaining 2, THEN remove the 2 jam nuts from the bolts you completely removed. If you don't first loosen the remaining 2 bumper bolts you will struggle to get the jam nuts to slide out. Lastly, bolt up new hitch with included hardware. An extra set of hands is helpful here. I was willing to pay a little more for this because of its nice curved design and the no drill install.

          Great product! Had it installed in approx. 45 mins. No drilling. Looks sharp.
          I dropped my spare , and it made all the difference, 2006 Ford Ranger Sport.

            Comments about Curt Class 3 Receiver Hitch, 2":

            This Curt Receiver installed easily. Follow the instructions and the install will take very little time. Suggestion --- Use a "breaker bar" to remove bumper attachment bolts and if you need to drill 1/2 inch holes,like I did, drill small to larger holes until you are at 1/2 inch and use SHARP drill bits. This Curt receiver will easily handle my pop up camper and is capable of heavier task -- probably beyond what my Ranger can handle !! Great product.

              Comments about Curt Class 3 Receiver Hitch, 2":

              This hitch fits my 99 ranger short bed 2 wheel drive like it was built with the truck.I am really happy how well it is hide and not hanging down like a lot of hitches I have seen.
              It is very well built and has black power coating all over and very clean welds.
              It is easier to install with 2 people or using a floor jack to hold it in place while bolting on. I did it by myself by using my stomach to hold it in place while installing bolts.I would have used my floor jack but didn't think of that till I was finish.It took me about 45 minutes doing it myself and with 2 people or a floor jack the time would be much less.

                    I would have gave it 5 stars, except it says you dont have to move the spare tire, its true but the spare dosent fit as snugly as before, not a big deal to me,i just wish they would have mentioned it, as after installing i thought maybe i did something wrong, i didnt, it just dosent fit snugly

                      Installing hitch was simple. The factory bolts use clips in the frame have to remove them. the tow hook bolts were the only issues I ran into. I have the ranger level II with the 31" tires and the spare fits under it with no problem in its orignal position. I would definately recommend to others.

                          I ordered this hitch to pull my fourwheeler trailer and its perfect. I put it on by myself in less than twenty minutes. Its does everything I bought it for.
